WROCC July Newsletter Volume 41:4 reviewed

Posted by Mark Stephens on 10:20, 19/7/2023 |
 
The July edition of the WROCC Newsletter was sent out to all club members this week.

This month the magazine is up to 16 pages of varied articles written by club members. It is definitely turning into a monthly RISC OS magazine in its own right! As a PDF file you can read it on any Computer, tablet or phone.
 
Chris Hall has an article on setting Time on RISC OS machines, including CMOS values and how it works on the Raspberry Pi. Chris also has an article on how to change and hide your Drive Icons on the desktop.
 
There is a review of the latest, free game from Jeroen Vermeulen game called Cherry Bomb and a general round-up of new software releases. New midi software is also mentioned.
 
John McCartney provides an excellent tutorial on how to Sharing with Samba on Linux.
 
There is a article on Using RISC OS and Mac together which was the topic for the June club talk.
 
All the usual club info and contact details are included along with a teaser for RISCOSbits talk on 3rd August. There is a write-up on Chris Hughes presenting a cheque to Wakefield Hospice for 1,000 pounds raised at the recent show and a very nice acknowledgment from the Hospice.
 
Finally some excellent news that there will be a Wakefield Show will be on Saturday 27th April 2024. This will again be at Bradford Cedar Court for the third year. Book your rooms now as it gets full!
 
As always, you can find out more about WROCC here. As well as the monthly newsletters, there is a monthly talk on Zoom. So if you are interested in RISC OS, being a member is a no-brainer, even if you live 'down south'.

John McCarthy? Who he?

Mark, you've made the opposite mistake to that made by the Registrar when my father's birth was registered. The surname should have been McCarthy but it came out as McCartney.

I've only recently found out that Paul (the famous one) should have been a McCarthy as well but when his ancestors landed from Ireland, the immigration official was either dyslexic or partially deaf.
